Whether they had the same intentions as you doesn't matter. It's all-encompassing so naturally it extends to sharing recipes, favorite flavors and "even bad food experiences." Just because some people don't use it for that, doesn't mean it can't be used for it. If you made "The all-encompassing Anime & Manga topic", it would be locked because we already have an Anime & Manga topic. Simple as that. I hope I helped. Well, I suppose that makes sense. If the thread already exists and it CAN serve a similar purpose then a duplicate will be removed. I read the community guidelines that you recommended to me in the Newbie thread, but your explanation makes it clearer. So! Am I allowed to start a vegetarian thread?! Retro Gaming Enthusiast.
